So, today can alternately be titled "Snow Day!" We Got a lot of snow today, like, more than a foot, and we're still getting more tonight. Luckily we just had a bit of a thaw and some of the previous snow had melted away, otherwise I'm sure this year would be looking a lot like the Winter of '08.

Oops, so yesterday I ended up falling asleep at, like, 8:30 and didn't make a Week in the Life post, I'm going to merge yesterday's and today's together.

Day 3 )
Then, as I said above, I basically passed out. So now, onto day 4!

Day 4 )

Today was a bit harder for me, since it was mostly a repeat of yesterday but I tried my best.

So a couple people on my flist are did this meme, even more did it last year, but I wasn't able to participate due to life but I wanted to try and do it this year. I don't know how good I'll be at doing it every day for the whole week, since I've been meaning to start doing it for a couple days now and today is the first day I actually did it. But we'll see.

Day 1 Pictures (one is NSFW) )

Wow, that's the first non-podfic related, personal post that I've made to this journal in a very long time. O_O

I've been participating in meme's on other people's journals lately, so I thought it was time to do one on mine. And also distract from some of the unhappy podfic things going on lately. So.

Give me a fandom and I'll tell you what I think I know and you can tell me how right/wrong I am.

Book meme!

Pick up the nearest book to you. Turn to page 45. The first sentence describes your sex life in 2012.

"It smelled like moss and oak and the damp dark spaces of the Wood beyond the meadow."

I'm just glad I was sitting on the side of the bed I was when I decided to do this, because if I was on the other, the closest book was a math textbook :S Although discussing exponents could have implied good things I guess?

Also, depending on my energy levels, I may be posting podfic meta soon.

Podfic Meme ) 2011 was definitely the year of podfic for me! I hope I can say the same for 2012!

The other day I was poking around my old entries and found my response to a vidding meme that was going around 3 years ago. I thought it might be fun to do a podfic version of it, since, well, podfic is my new thing.

Podfic Meme!  )

That was fun. :D I hope other podficcers try this meme too.
paraka: A baby wearing headphones and holding a mic (Default)
Leave a comment saying you want to do the meme and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.

[ profile] kira_dark_wing gave me: Kradam, Podfic, music, rant(in a good way ;p) and fandom )
paraka: Allison hugging Adam while they make funny faces (AI8-A/Al-Funny Face Hug)

There's a podfic love meme going on at [community profile] amplificathon (LJ and DW).

If you're someone who enjoys podfic, I highly recommend going over and showing some love. If you've enjoyed my podfic in the past, I have a thread going here.

Still to come, some time this week, a post about my weekend where I went to an Adam Lambert concert!!!

paraka: Arthur looking hot in the dungeons (M-A-In the Dungeons)
So, a while ago [personal profile] thedreamisreal posted a Snog, Shag, Marry or Throw Off a Cliff meme and gave me some characters to play with. Except she gave me really hard ones so it took me a while to come up with who goes where. She gave me Arthur Pendragon, John Connor, Alan Rickman and Sam Winchester.

But finally, here are my choices )

Snog, Shag, Marry, Throw Off a Cliff?

~Comment to this post and receive 4 options (actors/singers/so on, so forth). You must then decide which of the 4 options you would: Shag, Snog, Marry and Throw off a cliff.

1 – Think of 20 of your favorite movies.
2 – Go to and find a quote from each one of them.
3 – List them here and see how many your friends can guess.

Movie Quotes )

Dudes, you have no idea how hard that was for me. I had a hard time thinking of 20 movies I've even *watched* let alone *liked*, so you have a really odd assortment there.

So [personal profile] paradisecity and [personal profile] aurora were both doing icon meme's, here are my responses. But first, the rules:

1. Comment that you'd like to play and I will pick four of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Meme #2: The Desktop Meme
01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

Click for picture )

Meme #3?
While I was poking through my files, and getting ready to upload these pictures, I saw some pictures from a meme I originally did back in, like 2004. Basically, you leave a comment and I'll check out your interests and draw you a picture based on what I read. It probably won't be pretty (I'm not all that artistically inclined) but it will likely be funny :P (You can see some of the pics I drew the first time 'round here in amongst some other random pics). The porn one? Was totally for [personal profile] scatteredheart :P)

paraka: Dean looking angsty. (SPN-Dean)
Prompt from [personal profile] kabal42:

1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 people.

2) Post this meme with your answers.

3) Provide pictures and the names of the 3 people I gave you.(Please specify if you have a gender preference!) *waves hand* This is not the 3 you're looking for (because I can't be bothered right now).

4) Label which you would marry, which you would shag, and which you would throw off a cliff.

paraka: Wide eyed Snape with the caption "OMG" (HP-S-OMG)
Tee Hee. If I were to be an internet acronym, OMG would totally be it. Also, I find it amazing that I can spend all night at my computer without vidding or reading fic....

You Are OMG

You're the type of person who's always shocked by the internet.

Whether it's crazy news or a wild picture, you're always saying "Oh my god"!

The only thing better than being shocked is shocking your friends. You're quite good at that too.

And while you still allow yourself to be shocked, you secretly love it. You enjoy drama and gossip.

paraka: Don looking bored with the caption "Boring day" (N3-D-Boring Day)
Ok Ottawa, WTF. *Yesterday* was the snow storm. Why is it, I was able to get to work yesterday in 70 minutes but today it took me 2 hours. *And* I left early. I'm so not impressed.

So there's an [ profile] ottawa_slashers meet up this weekend. Do people on my flist need rides again? I'm already giving [ profile] seanchaidh a ride, how about [ profile] madeira, [ profile] diurnal_lee or [ profile] kronos999?
Warning if you do need a ride, I'm heading over to [ profile] lilithilien's place afterwards so we can plan our Europe trip, so rides home will either be early (before I go over) or late (after I go over) or arranged some other way, we can talk and figure things out.

And lately, a meme stolen from [ profile] kaaatie:
Reply to this entry with whatever is in your cut/paste buffer. Just click on the "reply" link and do a paste into the resulting box.
paraka: The caption Vidder ho with a purple had sitting on the V. (V-Vidding Ho)
So, I spent a good portion of this past weekend falling in love with vids (again). I've slowly been organizing the vids on my computer and have been rewatching my favourites. Doing so never ceases to remind me just how much I love vidding and how there are some truly talented people out there. It really makes me want to share the love with my flist. I was thinking it might be fun to try and challenge myself so for the month of January, I'm going to try and post one vid rec a day.
Is anyone interested in seeing this? I can't promise that they'll be the most original recs, a lot of the vids currently on my computer are older, or else I found them through someone else's rec. I am hoping that this can help me a bit as a vidder. So often I just watch a vid and get swept away with it but never take the time to articulate why it was able to do that.

I've already started to write some up (so at the very least you'll get 4 recs :P)

And while I'm updating, here's that first line meme so many are doing: )

paraka: Carson with a dorky look on his face (SGA-C-Dorky)
From [ profile] hermioneorourke, I was given the letter P.

Comment and I'll give you a letter; then you have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. Afterward, post this in your journal and give out some letters of your own.

1. Peanut butter. Mmmmm. And candy with peanut flavours, soo good.
2. My Papa, who passes away last year, but we were really close, and I still miss him.
3. Postcards! I love getting mail. :)
4. Purple! It's my favourite colour (but oddly enough, I'm actually allergic to purple foods).
5. Pets! I love my cat, who has been really long suffering for my need to snuggle lately.
6. Pineapple. On a stick! Seriously, that was my favourite food in China, I miss it still.
7. Podfic. It gets me through the day.
8. [ profile] potterpuffs (I totally just saw her Deathly Hollows update yesterday, it made me happy :D)
9. Paul McGillion! My TV boyfriend!
10. [ profile] paradise_city

paraka: Black and white photo of Don with his eyes closed (N3-D-Eyes Closed B&W)
Snagged from [ profile] scatter_heart, I thought this was a cool meme, especially since this year has really been about me pushing my boundaries in LJ, even if most of it is in comments, not posts:

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.
